A few weeks back, Paula DuPont took a good look at Codex – a new approach to notetaking on the iPad. The app, according to the developers, is designed to replace your trusty Moleskine (it costs about the same as a standard notebook) and there’s plenty of flexibility and notetaking tools within, allowing you to add colour, diagrams and text to your notes.
Last week, Phillip Johns looked at Mail Pilot, an alternative e-mail client for your iPad. Judging by the results of our weekly poll, out of a total of 340 votes, 249 of you (nearly three-quarters) thought that the iPad deserved something different to Mail.app, and Mail Pilot for some may be the answer.
Instead of focusing on working through your e-mails as and when you receive them, Mail Pilot lets you put off e-mails and will remind you later on to take a look at them. This approach has also been taken by Mailbox – for the time being it only supports the iPhone and Gmail accounts — but Mail Pilot features a few nifty features up its sleeve that can help you reach that beautiful feeling of “inbox zero” in no time at all.
This Monday, Pedro Lobo looked at Actions, an absolutely fantastic automation app for your iPad. You can control virtually everything about your Mac or Windows computer (separate versions are available) right from your tablet and you can also create some pretty nifty shortcuts that will not only save you time but also make you a lot more productive in whatever you do.
